The Canadian initiative to stop Wireless Electrical and Electromagnetic Pollution16 August 2013
In the last month, I have been contacted by two women driven out of their homes by illness caused by neighborhood installation of water pumps with variable frequency drives (VFD) or variable speed drives (VSD) or controllers. These are solid state devices which replace mechanical motor switches to control motor <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electric_motor> speed <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Speed> and torque <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Torque> by varying motor input frequency <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frequency> and voltage <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voltage> .
Dairy farmers were the first to recognize the problem, since installation of VFDs on milk pump motors caused an immediate drop in milk production. A 10 millivolt change in dirty electricity in the milking parlor floor equals a change of about a pound of milk per day in each cow.

VFDs are also being put on the motors of many new air conditioners and furnace fans.
The inverters and controllers on residential and commercial photovoltaic solar systems and wind turbines all generate dirty electricity.

FDA Finalizes Guidance on Radio Frequency in Wireless Medical Devices
Since it is possible for an electromagnetic disturbance (EMD) to affect important medical device functions, mitigation measures for some risks could aid the device operator in recognizing a hazardous situation and taking action to prevent harm, FDA said in the guidance.
Electrical Workers Union Speaks Out Against Smart Meters
Leaders of International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 1288 said Monday, July 8, they intend to put up billboards warning the public of what they say are the dangers of the new meters the utility plans to seek city funding for later this year.
"We know it can be hacked in China," said Donna Bohannon, another opponent of the meters. "Made in China, hacked by China."
North Webster Fire Department Chief Jeremy Likens said the fire at 36 EMS T14 Lane, Leesburg, "definitely started in the new meter.
Across the country, over 900 fires have been linked to smart meters since 2008, according to Jonathan Libber, a former attorney for the Environmental Protection Agency. Libber heads Maryland Smart Meter Awareness, a group opposed to the meters.
